  • Austin, TX

I am a puertorriqueña in the diaspora working with and for the Latino community as an arts administrator and educator. I work in arts and cultural organizations like the City of Austin’s Mexican American Cultural Center, where I mentor twelve teen interns, design science/arts-based curriculum, and run social media. I am also a consultant with the Smithsonian Latino Center, where I am in charge of diffusing the results of a four-year impact-study of their youth development program. I have a BA from the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras, and an MFA from The University of Texas at Austin.
